The sun window - Great Bedwyn

St Mary's church in Great Bedwyn, Wiltshire
Today, after a long enjoyable walk we (friends) stopped off to have a look at the lovely church in Great Bedwyn. The above window is over the main entrance into the church though I couldn't make out the face of the central figure in the window as the late afternoon sun dazzled through. When I moved I noticed that the face, although Christian in tradition, is actually depicted as a sun-god. An interesting moment.
